Virtual Health: Is it Real or Just Fantasy?

Saturday, March 12
11:00AM - 12:00PM

JW Marriott
Room 203-204
110 E 2nd St

A Virtual Visit enables a care team (provider, nurse, therapist, and other healthcare professionals) to engage in a video-based consult directly with patients through the use of virtual health platforms and equipment. Experts will speak to the historical legislative and policy initiatives that have hindered and promoted the use of virtual health at the state and federal levels, the rapid development of technology that is enabling these platforms to provide improved access and quality driven outcomes, the new programs being created to support them, and provide a physician’s insights into why she chose to provide virtual health to her existing patients and leverage it to attract new patients.
